July Active Rain Challenge - Savory Stories

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

So, I volunteered to help run this challenge just Tuesday morning.  I thought, “Why not make this challenge in alignment with what ever month July is national “____” month. So, I researched it. I found that there are 15 designations, but 9 of them have to do with food.

 

July is National

                                  Baked Bean Month

                                  Blueberry Month

                                  Culinary Arts Month

                                  Grilling Month

                                  Horseradish Month

                                  Hot Dog Month

                                  Ice Cream Month

                                  Peach Month

                                  Picnic Month

 

So, let’s celebrate our freedom to gather and break bread together. Make your posts about your favorite July recipes (sharing all the details). Make them about your favorite July picnics or grilling events. You can even write a post about your favorite July cooking class.  So, here are this month’s parameters:

 

Write a post sharing your recipe or food related event in July. Post at least 3 photos in each post – a video can count as one of your three photos

 

Make each post at least 300 words

 

Each post must contain a featured graphic.

 

You can make up to three posts. Each qualifying post earns 300 bonus points. A video showing a part of your post (either the recipe you made or the event you enjoyed) earns another 100 bonus points. You can submit up to 3 qualifying posts in this challenge.

 

 

 

Before 11:59 PM PDT July 31st, 2021, post a comment at the end of this blog sharing a link to each one of your posts.
